    Description

    Sioux and Pawnee Chiefs Cabinet Card. Cabinet card by Anderson that depicts Sergeant G. H. Bates flanked by eight identified chiefs of the Pawnee and Sioux Nations. The Pawnee Chiefs wear single feathers while the Sioux Chiefs wear eagle feather war bonnets. Bates was known as "The American Standard Bearer". He carried the American flag from Vicksburg, Mississippi to Washington, D.C. in a successful fundraising effort for disabled Union veterans and Union widows and orphans. The image is bold and resonant and quite desirable, given the multiple portraits.
